Easy Eggplant Parmesan
salt and pepper
non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
oil for frying
Warm oil in skillet over med/high heat. Slice up your eggplant into rounds. Make three bowls: one full of milk, one full of breadcrumbs, and one full of flour mixed with seasonings. Dip the eggplant piece first in milk, then dredge through flour and seasoning mix, then dip into milk again, then dredge through breadcrumbs. Place into skillet and fry.

Continue the process until all of your eggplant pieces are used up.
Lay on a papertowel to dry/soak up the oil.

Cook pasta, or quinoa, or couscous, whatever you are serving it over. I chose pasta, because The Boyfriend absolutely loves anything pasta. Top with some marinara, sprinkle with some vegan daiya cheese, and voila!
I made this a few hours ahead of time, because I knew it would be a great dinner to come home to after a run. Tonight we ran 10 miles and we were good and hungry when we got home! But first, coconut water to rehydrate!
I bought two kinds of coconut water at the health food store:
Coconut water benefits include:
- helps promote weight loss
- improves your immune system
- breaks up kidney stones
- boost thyroid health
- fights viruses
- aids circulation
- reduces swelling in hands and feet
- good for burns
- good for hangovers
- reduces urinary tract problems
- aids digestion by removing toxins
Have you ever tried coconut water? This was my first time drinking coconut water, although I have tried coconut milk before (read this post to find out the health benefits of coconut milk). I did like the coconut water, but will probably just continue to drink water to re-hydrate after a run. The coconut water is kind of pricey, and while I'm glad I tried it, I can't see myself buying it every time I'm at the store.
